2219Re: [steiner] The List-
- Nov 20, 2003Actually, I first joined this list in October of 2002.
I recently changed my email address and joined with
the new email address. The old address is
I am the mother of a Waldorf student in Southern
California and am here to learn more about the
philosophy behind my daughter's education.
I have been trying to read "Philosophy of Freedom" but
often have to put it down for weeks to absorb the 2
pages that I have just read. At the rate I'm going it
will take me years to finish the book.
I've been working with the "Calendar of the Soul" and
prefer the translation with the Edith Bierman series
but I also like the thought provoking symbols that
Starman sends out.
My current anthroposiphical pondering is related to
the "Calendar of the Soul". I often think about the
verse as I am walking down the arroyo. In Southern
California, at this time of the year nature seems to
be coming alive after a long summer sleep. The grass
is growing, the birds, and animals are becoming more
active after the first rains of autumn. Only the
trees seem to be preparing for the rest of Winter.
In fact, this week I seem to be jumbling two verses
together. The first line of this weeks verse is:
"The light from the depths of the Spirit". I have a
tendency to exchange it with "the light from the
expanses of the universe."
Similiarly, I am transposing the current line "and
shines into the dullness of the senses" with "and
shines into the depth of the spirit".
I'm thinking the mixed up California seasons are
jumbling the spring and fall soul calendar verses.
